of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups along the way. but i think those are the exception to the rule, which is a very functional u.s./israel relationship. >> are we at a stage now, aaron, where there is no longer as much pressure regionally to do something about the israeli/palestinian negotiations because there is so much of a crisis atmosphere given what's happening on the border of all of these countries, the relationship with egypt, the morsi government, the war in syria and the revolutions and the arab spring have created a completely new context. >> it's very true, the region is as broken, angry and dysfunctional as i've ever seen it. most of it is not the fault of this president. but the reality is this israeli/palestinian issue still resonates. it's the one issue that emotionally, ideologically, politically, still unite as dysfunctional and divided arab world. the problem the president has, i'll sum it up very clearly -- the two-state so

's defense. it is actually the antithesis of what we need. when the budget certainty and flexibility. sequestration compromises our readiness and compounds risk. left unaddressed, it could lead to a security gap, a lapse in coverage against threats to our national security interests. it is also the law. i'm hopeful but not optimistic that both its magnitude will be defused in the budget deal appeared in the meantime we have no choice but to prepare for its effect, which is our worst-case scenario. are you feeling afflicted? if you are, you're in good company. let me tell you this. the coverage, to continue my insurance metaphor, maybe a little less than what you were used to, but it is still the best available. and it is going to get better in time. here is where i hope my confidence bring some comfort. last week i called our joint chiefs and our combatant commanders to discuss how we will lead to this latest contraction, and it is the latest contraction. it is a bit of a historical pattern. in that room, where over 600 years of military experience was around the table, i thought we

they return here on c-span. today marks the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. here's part of what defense secretary hagel had to say about it in a statement released earlier from the pentagon. >> 34 years ago today, we began providing televised access to the everyday workings of congress and the federal government. the c-span networks, created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> we could take pictures of the brain with m.r.i. scans or c.t. scans or pet scans and see the whole thing. there is this enormous gap in between about how the circuits in the brain function in order to be able to move my hand or to look at you and process that information, or lay out in memory. we don't know how that works. with technologies yet to be invented, a lot of this is going to be technology development, a lot of it will be nanotechnology, what we aim to do is be able to record from thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of brain cells at the same time, be able therefore to underis stand how these circuits work. that's the brain activi
hot spots. now, these findings came out a 2012 panel of white house advisers including now defense secretary chuck hagel. "the post" saying agencies like the cia are ignoring places like china and the middle east to instead focus on current military operations and drone strikes. authorities say operations have been side-lined dating back more than a decade of conflict. the white house has not commented publicly on the report but recent remarks from top officials suggest they share the panel's concerns. >>> let's go to north korea now. issued a new threat to the united states. that country saying it will waste no time attacking u.s. mill area bases in japan and on the island nation of guam. if provoked. those threats come a day after kim jong-un ran a mock strike. pyongyang has stepped up its rhetoric in recent days. over what it calls hostile, ongoing military drill s betwee south korea and the u.s. although north korea is believed to lack the technology to carry out such an attack washington says it's deploying more anti-missile batteries in alaska to counter a possible threat. >>
and it is coming up close. bill: what the israelis built the iron dome missile defense shield which worked tremendously well last time around with hamas. what is the state of affairs with the relationship benjamin netanyahu and president obama? how is it going? >> it is complicated but it seems to be improving the optics are certainly warm. the question is what is happening behind closed doors. i think both men see it in their interests, the national interest of both countries to close the gap. if they have disagreements keep them behind closed doors. keep working on them. don't let disagreements with this moment with this threat from iran and syria become public. keep that daylight limited. bill: what is public is that the reception that chuck hagel has been received by the israeli people has not been necessarily flattering as the new defense secretary. in addition to that it is public that ben benjamin netanyahu supported the other guy. he was a fan of mitt romney. >> these political moments are going to happen. the u.s. under president obama has a lot to rebuild in terms of credibility
up tricare who taken together would be the sixth largest contractor in the defense department. this is because they have enjoyed enormous amount of growth with all of these additional beneficiaries coming to the system. since they haven't passed on any of the costs to those beneficiaries, who still pay less than $250 a year for health care. but the government has reimbursted all the increases in the actual price of diagnostic and the actual utilization of treatment and i did diamostic higher than the private sector systems. and this tricare problem will increase even further when the affordable care act pushes everyone in to buying a medical plan, because for all of those who are not insured now, particularly guards and reservists whom at least 30% according to a recent study don't have insurance. it will be cheaper to buy to the tricare system then even to pay the penalty for not having insurance. another key decision taken in 2004, in response to the recruiting shortfall was to adopt higher pay scale indexing in the pentagon. previous pay increases were linked to the employm
to a question the president seemed a little defensive about why the united states during his administration has not authorized military force to stop the slaughter in syria. listen to this. >> i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily. if it doesn't, then people say, why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing them into the blothem -- an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> did you get the sense the president is on the same page as far as syria is concerned with jordan king abdullah nearly half a million syrian refugees have poured into jordan over these past two years. >> dealing with the refugee crisis, yes. the president says we'll send more money. we'll try to get more humanitarian aid. i'll pick up the phone and get you more help. nobody knows what page they're on when it comes to th
cliches, we have to interrogate those terms but i want to say in defense of philanthropies that i have written critically about the big monopolistic philanthropy that do away with small-scale philanthropy that allow competition and different approaches but on the hole if you look at george soros or bill gates and want to say in terms of the world or malaria or small children living longer and women getting on i would rather have a world of philanthropy than without although i could design a philanthropic world that maybe didn't have bill gates or george soros in it that was ideal but in terms of the real world of philanthropy i am glad to have those philanthropies and the other thing to be careful of is having too that bill gates and george soros, they're so monopolistic and tied to big money, the fact is a lot of lives have been saved around the world in the developing world because of the work that those philanthropies have done despite the connections with tainted money and their monopolistic operations that make it harder to have choices. let's have another round here. would you st
secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say more cautious than they were in 2003 about supporting another war being waged by the united states. >> our power panel today jonathan capehart, margie o'mara, chip saltsman, thank you all very much. stay with msnbc for continuing coverage of the president's trip to the middle east. >>> coming up next congress works to avoid a government shutdown but no matter what they do voters are giving them a thumbs down. we'll be joined by congresswoman blackburn next. plus, sentencing day for a teen who went on a kil

we're talking about with some accuracy. >> aren't the bases protected by some sort of missile defense system? >> yes. they have a missile defense around them. it is important to bear in mind the limits of that technology. the idea of shooting down a missile as it is traveling toward something works best when that missile flies a long enough time for you to have several shots added. these are relatively short range shots, intermediate range shots. it gets harder under those circumstances. and as you know, jake, our intelligence about north korea is extremely limited. we would likely have no warning whatsoever when this was actually going to happen if they wanted it that way. the one caveat to all of this and the real deterrent, though, is if north korea did this, the response from the u.s. and its allies would likely be absolutely overwhelming against them. >> jake? >> tom foreman. >>> ahead in our money lead, for better or worse twitter is part of our lives now. i'll talk with the guy that's ultimately to blame for words like hash tag and tweets. that's next. r sized then this will be

. they sure don't want to tell them what self-defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. he is so reckless in terms of his comments on this whole issue >> bill: yeah, by the way, the last person who should talk about anybody spending money on the gun issue is wayne lapierre and the nra because that's all they do. they walk around the capitol handing out checks to members of congress. >> that's why they are afraid of the nra. they are not afraid of the nra. they love their money. they are afraid they will lose their money. the nra walks around. i wouldn't be surprised if they are on the floor. john boehner would probably let them on the floor of the house just handing out checks. hell, checks? no. just give them hundred dollar bills. hand them out. >> that's what they do. yeah, then he accuses bloomberg. bloomberg, man, i have to tell you, i know i raz him a lot for being the nanny state and the nanny mayor, which he is, by the way, on a lot of stuff. i think the 16-ounce drink thing was stupid but he puts his money where his mouth is. >> that's wha
